In Pictures: Branch Line Society tour Tyne & Wear Metro

4085+4030-th

4085+4030 are seen on the depot avoiding line having used the crossover at Longbenton and approaching the side of the depot. It will then carry on round to the Airport line. In the early days of the Metro, BR trains used to come off the East Coast Mainline at Benton and used the line to access the Nestle sidings at Fawdon. (Photograph by Trevor Hall, 24th February 2019)
